We're running FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE on a R730 quite happily.  The only
gotcha we encountered was support for the H730 RAID controller -- this
probes as an mfi(4) device but doesn't work properly (timeouts, IO
failures, probably soon enough that you won't be able to complete
installing the system).  You need to set hw.mfi.mrsas_enable=3D1 at the
loader prompt and then in /boot/loader.conf to override it into using
the mrsas(4) driver, after which everything works like a charm.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
